Add a Rustic Feel to Your Holiday Decor
A fun holiday chalkboard jar candle project that looks beautiful as a centrepiece.
Remove candle label. Next, with a cotton pad, swipe the exterior of the candle jar with rubbing alcohol. The rubbing alcohol with act as a great adhesive for the chalkboard paint.
Next, use twine to wrap around the top of the candle. Wrap the twine just below the rim of the candle. It gives the candle a more rustic look plus I felt the pine branches held better when I glue gunned them to the twine.
Now comes my favourite part, the decorating! Use the pine branch to decorate the candle.
Once you decorated the candle to your liking, you can now write with the chalk. Don’t worry if you make a mistake, you can always erase it and start again.
Lastly, to add a wintery effect, I used the Snow-Tex and applied it with my fingers to the rim of the candle. I also used a brush to swipe some Snow-Tex on the pine branches.
